Mrs Soumya Sriram – Chennai
The theme of my Golu is “Melakarta Ragas”
There is an play and hear demo of the Melakarta or Parent Ragas.
This golu I have made a small golu with a theme that does no more than showcase the 72 melakarta ragas, their structure and an audio of the aarohanam, avarohanam of each of the 72 parent ragas together with a Carnatic song and a film song.

1-72 are the aarohanam / avarohanam
73-144 are the Carnatic songs
145-216 are songs from movies ( I could not find songs for certain ragas or janya ragas )This golu is to tickle the viewers interest in our heritage and interest him or her to walk on a path of understanding Carnatic music.My husband Sriram was instrumental in helping me with the creation.Key cards of each Raga – 6 to a chakra are placed on grooved wood and each chakra is further explained in relation to the chakras in the human body together with the Colour they represent.I have placed a keyboard for the viewer to try playing the chords of their favorite melakarta while listening and learning.
